    I was there for the Grand Prix, and a long term stay. Everything was clean, the staff were friendly (and even came to check on me when I slept in) and the location was an easy tram ride to the centre.

    Large suite for self-catering

    • Suite
    • Stayed 4 nights

    The oven had no shelves and the advertised microwave was not there. The crockery and cutlery set, which you have to request, was adequate but was a mixture of plates and cups with no sharp knife, no teaspoons, one mug and one glass (for two people).

    We stayed for 4 nights in a suite on the second floor, comprising a large living area with a balcony and separate bathroom, kitchen and bedroom. The living area included a desk, a table with three chairs, a large sofa and an easy chair. The kitchen included plenty of storage cupboards, a fridge and an oven and stove top. Our friends had a suite on the first floor which had a larger living area but with no balcony and the kitchen area was part of the living area. Although on a main road, there was little noise. It is a little way out of the centre of Mannheim but within easy walking distance of a tram stop which goes directly to the main station and city centre. It is also within easy walking distance of two supermarkets which are open until 9pm but closed on Sundays. There is an underground secure garage which costs 7 euros per day. The complex includes laundry facilities.

    Wherever possible I like to be within walking distance but can't expect this always.

    Room super-clean and comfortable. At first I thought the position was inconvenient (taxi from station and not knowing where I was going) but then realised there was an excellent tram service from Hauptbahnhof (conveniently for me via the Opernhaus). Would certainly consider staying here again and pleased to recommend it to other visitors.

    At least i stayed there for 2 weeks.

    very limited shopping and eating choices around the place. the room i had was a room with a kitchen but no rang hood and any other utensils. (In this case, never used that during my stay.)The shower was unbelievable, the water got extremely hot in some days and i guess a new shower head should be replaced cos the water was going all direction instead of one. The tv set was a quite old one with very limited channel(3 if i remember well)and it emitted strange ringing sound when opened, never opened again afterwards. Yes, i should not complain too much with such a low price. At least this could be helpful for some future improvement.

    With a relatively low price for the place. You can find here as a compromised option. Nice and quite surroundings. Easy access to the tram 5A(5 minutes walking distance). spacious room.

    not a place for tourists, this was more of a place for business travellers /families etc. who are staying in the city for a longer period. It felt like a regular apartment. There was a ladies sanitizer on the shelf. The room was too expensive.
